Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese (4 ounces)
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1-8 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 1-2.8 ounce package cooked bacon pieces
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 slices sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 hamburger buns or plain bagel thins
  • Leaf lettuce (optional)
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced (optional)
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced (optional)

 

Directions:

  1. In a very large bowl combine beef, blue cheese, onion, pineapple, ham, bacon pieces, pepper, and garlic powder; mix well. Shape meat mixture into eight 1-inch-thick patties.
  2. For a charcoal grill, place patties on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, covered, for 12 to 14 minutes or until done (160 degrees F to 165 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling.
  3. Top burgers with cheddar cheese. Continue to grill, covered, for 2 minutes more or until cheese is melted. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as directed.)
  4. Serve burgers on buns. If desired, top with lettuce, tomato, and onion.
